NKKI) OK PRECAUTION
iHI2 Bandon Western World
makes tho following very
good suggestion: "Tho dif
ficulty of tho Coast Guard crow In
reaching tho spono of tho wreck
of thu Santa Clara with their equip
ment, Is an Illustration of what
might happen in Ilandon, should a
sleamor bo wrecked along ttila coast.
It omphaBlzos tho necessity of an
auto road to tho beach. Coo Hay
needs ono; so docs Hniidon. While
wrecks nro fow and far between
at this port, tho unexpected might
happen at any tlmo. At"any rato
thora should bo a road from tho
top of tho bank to tho boach for
thu honuflt of beach visitors. If
tho proper representations aro mado
perhaps tho Government can bo In
duced to help for tho boncflt of the
CVa6t Guard service."
Tho suggestion Is a vory good ono.
Dniidou needs such a road and Coos
llaV docs, too. Thero should bo a
roadway cloarod along tho .Miffs
boiiUi of tho bar whoro tho Chinook,
Julia Ilea, Marconi and Santa Clara
havo been wrecked. No ono wants
a wiock to occur and It Is to bo
lie, oil that such a road would novor
havo to bo iibciI by tho llfo-savora,
but tho fnct roiuuliiH that wrecks do
occur and If thero Is not another
for ten years It would bo worm
while to maintain such an aid if It
agisted in any way In tho anvil'
